What we're about

We get people together to play Role-playing games (RPGs) of all flavours, from Dungeons & Dragons to indie storytelling RPGs. Veterans and new players all very welcome.

We've got an active Discord community for online play at: https://discord.gg/EAFPhgU

Current games and planned games include D&D, Monsterhearts, Pathfinder, Apocalypse World, Zeitgeist, and much more.

We play full campaigns, single adventures and one-off sessions of all sorts - players and GMs wanted!

Please note, due to Meetup's incompetent redesign, it's now more difficult to find the Waiting To Play event, please join this to find out about new groups starting and to let people know what you want to play or run!

DnD 5E Baldurs gate: Descent into Avernus

Online event

Dare you join a quest into hell? All levels of experience welcome. If you have any questions please ask. Please be available for this time every week as it will be a longish campaign. I’m new to being a dm and fairly new to DnD in general so please have patience. Please make a character before the first session using Roll 20. The link is posted below. Please use officially published material for character building, no AU, Matt Mercer or homebrew please. Point buy or standard array for abilities. We will use discord which can be found below. Please go to GM Nat’s section. I would really prefer if people join the chat with their cameras as it makes it a lot easier to know who is speaking. We have had 1 session so far that included an introduction and a brief first episode. We are looking for one more player due to one dropping out. Anyone who joins after this is welcome to join a waiting list. https://discord.gg/nHsJsH

D&D 5E Session 71

The Craft Beer Co. BN1

The fearsome seventy-first session. Our party have ventured, once more, into the Bag of Infinite Holding. Their avowed intention is to deal with the Tarrasque. Once & for all. No, really. Seriously! Please note that this group is currently full. Normally we would be happy for anybody to come along & see how very badly we play the game. However, under current circumstances I am afraid that that is not possible. Sorry! The basic rules are available as a free download from the Wizards of the Coast website here:- http://media.wizards.com/2016/downloads/DND/PlayerBasicRulesV03.pdf Character sheets are available here:- http://media.wizards.com/2014/downloads/dnd/5E_CHARACTERSHEETSV3.ZIP

DnD 5e: The Curse of Brighthelmstone: Blood in the dust 01

Welcome to a new Dnd 5E adventure. All levels of experience welcome. If you have any questions please ask. Please be available for this time every week as it will be a longish campaign. Please also note that there are a fair few things to think about before the first session. I’m very new to being a dm and fairly new to DnD in general so please have patience. Please make a character before the first session using Roll 20 or DnD Beyond. The link is posted below. Please use officially published material for character building, no AU, Matt Mercer or homebrew please (apart from the exceptions mentioned below). Point buy or standard array for abilities. We will use discord which can be found below. Please go to GM Nat’s section. I would really prefer if people join the chat with their cameras as it makes it a lot easier to know who is speaking and it makes me feel more like I am socialising. This adventure is set in a fantastical medievel Brighton (Brighthelmstone) and the surrounding area incorporating local legends and historical events. Although I am using history to develop it, some historical events are taken from other periods and it will not be 100% historically accurate. Since it is set in medieval England please bare the following in mind: Your character will have to appear human in order to be accepted in any settlements. All official WoTC races and classes can be used but characters will need a disguise if they look very different. Elves can cover their ears and dwarves look similar to humans but half-orcs for example will need a better disguise. In the society, small amounts of magic would be acceptable and class someone as a cunning person, but any more would be considered witchcraft, unless it appears to have a clear divine origin. Arcane magic users will therefore need to be careful. Those following religions (particularly Paladins and Clerics) can choose to be either Catholic, Lollard or Pagan if they are local. At the start of the campaign all religions other than Catholicism are illegal. Other world religions of the time are also available if characters come from other areas. For Catholics Clerics can choose a religious order for their specific domain. Druids will by nature be pagans. Paladin’s may have vows related for example to Catholic orders or to Lollard beliefs . Please ask me if you wish to know more for this. If characters are from Brighthelmstone then medieval English names would be most appropriate. For languages there is no such thing as common, instead being replaced by all the languages of the time. Please also add a back story for the characters. The following applies to all player characters: They have lived in brighthelmstone, went away and have been drawn back. They may have been born here or lived here at another point. But there was a reason they wanted to leave and they don’t want to live here again. Who do they know in Brighthelmstone? Please bare in mind that Brighthelmstone is a small fishing village and so does not have a large assortment of trades. When making bonds, flaws etc please be specific ie not just you are searching for an answer to a question, but what that actually is. We will start the session going over session 0 type things and then if people are ready move on to playing. I had to choose an end time for Meetup however this may vary. I look forward to meeting you on Monday. https://app.roll20.net/join/8187728/mLfybg https://discord.gg/vad8uQ https://ddb.ac/campaigns/join/12958003032055668

Heist! (story-telling megagame/rpg crossover)

Online event

10 players, a sunday afternoon, Criminals and the Authorities try to resolve a bank heist! This is a mini-megagame/RPG cross-over. It's a narrative/story driven game, but with boardgame-like mechanics. We'll play on Discord with separate voice channels for Criminals, Authorities, telephones, the megaphone and so on, plus Roll20 to display maps and things. I've put a proposed date in, we want 10 players exactly, ideally! Please sign up if you're interested, and declare Criminal or Authority - I'll balance the teams somehow! If you want to play, please RSVP over at https://www.meetup.com/Brighton-Pub-Boardgamers/events/272037763/
